Notes & Reviews:

Dazzling South Korean pianist Dong Hyek Lim was a precocious talent who was first recorded by this label in 2001 becoming the youngest pianist to record for them. Since then he has grown into a mature artist and balances his building performance career (particularly around Asia) with life in New York and sutdies with the great Emmanuel Ax. He is the laureate of several international competitions including the Hamamatsu, Chopin and Tchaikovsky competitions as well as the Long-Thibaud International Piano Competition when in 2001 he became the youngest ever winner of the Premier Grand Prix. With this ablum Dong Hyek returns to the music of Chopin, a composer close to his heart.

Gramophone Magazine, November 2015
His approach might best be described as close reading: Chopin's markings are observed to the letter, including impeccable phrasing that lives and breathes. Unrushed tempi and sparse pedalling reveal a wealth of detail...Lim's Preludes alone are worth the purchase price.

BBC Music Magazine, February 2016
Each of the Preludes is vividly characterised, with Lim running the gamut between dark turbulence and pastoral tranquility with absolute assurance. He doesn't waste energy trying to find novel approaches - he just lets the music speak, exercising restraint where other young pianists take showy liberties; I've seldom hear the Raindrop Prelude rendered with such persuasive grace.
